Make Sure He’s All the Way Dead

According to police, Nicholas Harris, 20, of St. Petersburg, Fla., planned to beat a man to death. He allegedly hit the man repeatedly in the face with a BB gun and, thinking the man was dead, put the man in his car and drove home, where he dragged the man into the house. Police say Harris told his girlfriend and another unidentified person to help him bury the body, and threatened them with a knife when they refused. A few hours later, the man woke up, and Harris’ mother and brother took him to the hospital. Harris was arrested and charged with first-degree attempted murder, and multiple counts of battery, assault, false imprisonment, possessing a firearm as a felon, and burglary.
